Italian-born language teacher and tutor for toddlers and young children, Elisabetta Zaccaria has always had a deep passion for both writing and illustrating children’s books, comics and greeting cards. She has been managing her own language center in Tuscany, Italy for over 20 years, teaching both English and Italian classes for children, teenage students and adults.
Ever since Elisabetta was a very young age, her passion for learning foreign languages and drawing steadily propelled her into her current love for writing and illustrating stories and fairy-tales. Four years ago, she moved to London with her family, where she continues to manage her language school in Tuscany, organizes and teaches both Italian and English language courses, and holds fun learning labs for young children, a great source of inspiration for her own stories and illustrations.
In the UK, Elisabetta has started a greeting card business, producing watercolored and black ink hand-illustrated greeting cards for her clients. Her wide production of children’s books is currently expanding, as she continually adds new stories and illustrations. She is now working on a brand new children’s comic book with newly-created and designed attractive characters, Zig, Zandy and Zero!
